Nature Center Animals

Our staff is completely ecstatic over the addition of three new critters to the Nature Center. These new tenants, all reptiles by classification, consist of one Western Hognose Snake, one Banded Water Snake and one Florida Softshell Turtle. The snakes are from Southern Reptile Haven, a rescue center based in Jacksonville, FL, while the turtle was donated to us from a local home. One thing is for sure...our new friends will be in good company with the other Nature Center animals as their roommates!

Amelia Island Gingerbread House

Welcome to Santa's Summer Home This holiday season, the culinary team at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort decided to amp up it's gingerbread skills. Executive Chef Daven Wardynski wanted to create "something more" than just your traditional gingerbread house, so he began sketching out ideas and brainstorming with his team as to what that something more was going to be. What they finally settled on was something festive but uniquely Amelia Island. Following 1,000 hours of planning, baking and building, the culinary team finally unveiled its creation this past Saturday in the hotel lobby. We're proud to present Santa's Summer Home. This wonderful edible arrangement features an 8-foot long gingerbread boat dock, a 10-foot tall gingerbread palm tree, a gingerbread Tiki Hut and a beach made entirely out of "Chef's Sand" (brown sugar, white sugar and cookie crumbs). Check out some of the photos below and happy holidays!
